GRDDL Test Suite

Filed under:

I’ve announced recently the first release of a GRDDL Test Suite, whose goal is to allow to evaluate GRDDL implementations with regard to the specification.

The test suite is composed of

  • a series of input/expected output documents – for the time being, only XHTML input has been integrated in the test suite
  • an RDF list of these test cases, binding input and output documents, and defining the purpose of the test case – much as described in the QA Wiki on test metadata; the RDF vocabulary I’m using to that end is the one that was developed for the RDF Core test suite, mainly because it existed already – I’m not sure yet if this will prove to be benefitial in the end in terms of tools

GRDDL on the desktop

Filed under:

While it’s fun to be able to play with GRDDL on the Web, what I would really love to see is desktop applications using GRDDL to integrate with the Web; some random ideas:

  • get Evolution to be able to subscribe to an HTML page to import contacts from it; this would suppose: getting Evolution to understand an RDF contacts vocabulary (e.g. SWAD contact or FOAF), and then to get it to understand GRDDL – either with the full URI dereferencing/XSLT processing, or simply with a few well-known HTML profiles to encode it- maybe Chandler would be a better application to target?
